Dreadful Drama by Rachel Wright


Dreadful Drama by Rachel Wright

First ancient Greek guys put on masks and acted out top tales. Next Shakespeare and his pals had some huge hits. Now the world's a stage to all sorts - from plays with no words to actors with no clothes! In this behind-the-scenes guide you'll meet an actress who slept in a coffin, a playwrite who lost the plot, and a director with all the talent of a corridor. You'll turn the spotlight on stage fights, fake props and special effects, and find out if you've got what it takes to write a smash-hit play or be a mega-stage star.
